A massive search effort for the missing mother of triplets that disappeared almost two months ago took place Saturday. More than 200 people searched for 39-year-old Jacque Waller, who disappeared near her estranged husband's Jackson home. Her car was abandoned on Interstate 55 with a flat tire. This was the biggest search effort since the woman's disappearance.
Her estranged husband James Clay Waller, whom she was married to for 17 years, has been described as a person of interest. Jacques Waller disappeared the same day that she and Clay planned to meet with a divorce attorney in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
Clay's attorney told a Cape Girardeau television station Friday that Clay was not involved in the disappearance and that Clay Misses his wife and he is very hurt and sorry over her disappearance.
Clay Waller told police that several offensive statements were spray-painted on his truck.
Jacque's mother Ruby Rawson told FOX 2 that the triplets Have meltdowns, of course they're 5-year-olds. They want to know where their mother is. They miss her terribly because she was such a loving mother and they really enjoyed being around her.
At night, when they go to bed and say prayers, they want to know where Mommy is, said Ruby Rawson, Waller's mother.
Clay Waller also told police several derogatory words were spray-painted on his truck.
The triplets are staying with Jacque's sister and brother-in-law.
